Blooming Marvelous Florals

Wednesday, August 3rd, 2011

Florals have been a major trend in fashion and this is now spilling over into design. It looks like this is a trend that restaurants and hotels are embracing with gusto.

What used to be a touch of colour has been replaced with a touch of floral. Yay!

In fact we love this trend so much that we’ve incorporated it into the recent Bread & Wine Vineyard Restaurant revamp. The interior now sports an Alice in Wonderland garden feeling which compliments the outdoor courtyard perfectly.

If you’re in the area pop into Môreson and check out our floral chandeliers. You won’t be disappointed!
